• Our Mission

    Our mission is to integrate science, engineering, and medicine by bringing together the many departments of the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg research and teaching hospitals, and other research centres across Canada in a unique collaboration to improve human health and enrich the educational experience of students by fostering the collaboration of the researchers in interdisciplinary biomedical engineering research.

    We educate our students in the fundamentals of science, engineering, and medicine, and train them to carry their scientific expertise and engineering skills from the research labs to the actual world of medical technologies, and also to bring clinical insights from the patients to the research laboratories.


We welcome applications to the Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering.

Student Resources

Biomedical Engineering students can access opportunities, supports and resources from the Biomedical Engineering program, the Price Faculty of Engineering, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and UM.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteer research participants are critical to any treatment development or research. The Volunteer research participant's comments, reactions, statements and observations guide us in modifying and developing treatments and tests, and to better understand the needs of the volunteer research participant's community. You can make a difference and help shape the care and treatment of those in you community by volunteering!

Alzheimer's treatment volunteers needed

Do you have a beloved family member or know someone with probable Alzheimer’s? If yes, you may wish to enrol them in this treatment clinical trial.

This study, approved by the University of Manitoba Biomedical Research Ethics Board, uses a novel technology called repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS), a non-invasive procedure with minimal side-effects. Our offices are located at Riverview Health Centre.

Please feel free to contact us for more information. We appreciate an opportunity to answer your questions.

Healthy seniors needed

Electrovestibulography (EVestG) technology has been applied towards diagnosis of and separation of Parkinson disease (PD) / Schizophrenia / Depression (Unipolar vrs Bipolar) / Meniere's Disease / Controls [6-19]. Sensitivities and specificities so far have been typically above 85%. EVestG is used as an objective technique for analyzing brain signals to detect neurological and mood disorders compared to healthy brain signals.

We need healthy volunteers, 60 year of age or older, to examine the accuracy of results.
